Our ongoing projects

If women AND men take over responsibilty and participate actively in family planning, the easier it is to establish prosperity, gender equality, and finally peace!

Since 2009, we have been able to train almost 700 Rain Workers in 12 East and West African countries and share educational information regarding family planning with more than 500 000 people!

We can­not expect women to give birth until they die from it. We can­not afford that in our huma­ni­ty.

I have been fol­lowing Dr. Hengstberger’s com­mit­ment for a very long time and I am deligh­ted to see that gre­at things have deve­lo­ped from the ori­gi­nal idea. May you all con­ti­nue to put so much ener­gy into the­se ide­as and their imple­men­ta­ti­on!
All the best,

Enab­ling access to fami­ly plan­ning not only incre­a­ses individual’s auto­no­my, it is also the ans­wer to many of the eco­no­mic, social, demo­gra­phic, and envi­ron­men­tal issu­es of our time.

It is important to note cul­tu­re, tra­di­ti­on, and reli­gi­on when under­ta­king deve­lo­p­ment work, as the­se fac­tors deter­mi­ne individual’s lives and respon­ses to new infor­ma­ti­on. Akti­on Regen works with local Rain Workers to share infor­ma­ti­on that is acces­si­ble, sui­ta­ble to cul­tu­ral con­texts and under­stand­a­ble.
